2011 NFL Draft Order Comes Into Focus

With one game to go tonight between the Seattle Seahawks and the St. Louis Rams, the first 20 picks of the 2011 NFL Draft Order are nearly set.

Either St. Louis or Seattle will “win” the NFC West and take the 21st spot, which is subject to playoff performance.

Carolina wrapped up the first pick in the draft last week, while the Patriots and Falcons have dibs on the 31st and 32nd picks, finishing with 14-2 and 13-3 records respectively. Those two spots will eventually be given to the Super Bowl Winner and Runner-Up.

After the 2011 NFL Playoffs, the 21st-24th spots are reserved for the Wildcard losers, the 25-28th spots are reserved for the losers during the Divisional round, while the losers of the AFC/NFC Championship games will be given the 29th and 30th draft positions.

The Oakland Raiders currently the only NFL team without a 1st-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, trading it to the Patriots in exchange for Richard Seymour.

    Steve, enjoy your comments immensely. Some of us Pats fans like myself don”t know enough about the game and you consistently provide incisive information. And you make me laugh too. Dont ever “get a job” unless its as a writer for Patriots Football Weekly or some other publcation. Thanks again!

    There should be interesting updates to the postings of this website.

      I’m really not sure what you’re talking about Bill…fill us in, or me in, please.

      What I do know is KC screwed us royally, and I can’t get mad at Oakland for going into KC and winning a game where they had nothing much to play for; maybe film for a new coach and therefore a job, but not this season!

      The damage has been done…17 is where it’s at and, but having 3 picks in the top 33 is a very nice thing to have.

      Look at the other teams….lousy, no QB, lousy owner, lousy QB-lousy owner-lousy coach. We’re a young & talented team, have the best coach, have the best QB, and need to fill a few holes; while we have guys like Bodden, Warren coming back, possibly? We can kick back enjoy the play offs, Senior Bowl, the Combine, and then draft day(s)…should be fun. Then approx 11,489 Red Sox games over a long & hot summer and we’ll be back to playing football.

      Winning it all takes some lucky bounces…don’t think they are going to cruise to a Super Bowl win; admitting that they are set up as best as possible with home field. Even if they lose this young team will be back, and they’ll then have playoff experience. They’ll be much better for it going forward.
